Having bananas and milk is perfect as they both are full of calories and contain a high amount of carbohydrates. 2. Eat a banana daily with some warm milk. Also add a teaspoon of sugar. 3. Avoid eating a banana when you are down with cold. 4. Peanut butter is another yummy remedy for gaining weight.  it is perfect for toast and bread. It's full of carbs and a nutritious food.   some people avoid exercises in hope to gain calories. It's not a healthy habit. Being lazy doesn't mean you will gain weight in a healthy way. 5. Avoid indolence. The herbs which belong to'brunghnadi gana' (grouped in nourishing herbs) and medicines such as those made of corals, pearls, shells and some excellent calcined metallic have the potential to add weight when given as per your body type.
